Today I was officially diagnosed with adult adhd. I can’t begin to explain how relieved I am. It turns out things that I’ve considered personality defects are actually symptoms of this disorder. Interrupting people, saying inappropriate things, swirling on a topic for days: all issues I’ve battled with since childhood and finally have an answer. Mental health is important. Talk to your doctor and do research. You never know what’s going on inside your brain.

That’s amazing, happy for you How did you pursue diagnosis? I’ve been trying to sort this out while navigating telehealth for the first time and am predictably overwhelmed & making little progress!

Honestly, my wife was the first to point it out to me. Once she asked about it, I started researching symptoms and it was literally a laundry list of issues that I had. I couldn’t help but laugh, because it was so on point. After that, I spoke with my dr, he sent me to a specialist who tested me, and sure enough I checked every box. Now it’s just a question of how we handle it

Me too!

Does anyone have any thoughts about a company terminating an employee within the HR team for testing positive for COVID 19 and further accusing the said employee of being the one that created the entire team to become infected by not answering the health screening questions accurately? The week prior to employee being tested the entire team was in the office sick. The company in question weeks prior wrote the employee up referencing sexual innuendo due to an accusation of a preferred name.

Does anyone know how insurance work when you leave a company? Say I leave on day X, does my insurance ends on day X as well or it will last til the end of the two week period after my last paycheck (because insurance premium is still held from paycheck)? And does medical insurance reimburse / cover based on the date of treatment or the date of they processing the claim? Thank you so much!
